Dr. Emily Kook (pronounced "Cook") is the primary optometrist providing eye care at Santa Cruz Costco.
Dr. Kook is a board certified optometrist who is DPA and TPA/TPL licensed to diagnose, treat, and manage ocular diseases with therapeutic pharmaceutical agents. She received her Doctorate in Optometry from Southern California College of Optometry and her Bachelor of Science degree from UCLA. She has completed internships at the eye clinics in Santa Barbara Department of Veterans Affairs, Albuquerque Eye Institute and Pearl Harbor Naval Base.
In addition to providing family eye care and LASIK co-management, Dr. Kook excels in specialty contact lens fitting for people with astigmatism and presbyopia (the eye's inability to focus on close objects). Many of her patients have never worn contact lenses before and Dr. Kook has given them options beyond relying on glasses. Dr. Kook is equipped with the newest innovations in contact lens products and has successfully fitted patients of all ages into contact lens. Dr. Kook looks forward to serving you with friendly, professional and comprehensive eye care.
Please note that our office is open every day and Dr. Kook's associate optometrists are available to provide eye exams in our office on the days when Dr. Kook is not scheduled to see patients.
